Via www.countryweekly.com

With the world being as crazy as it is, and celebrity seems to be this false sense of entitlement...country artist are different. They care, they raise money for their hometowns, they reach out to fans in need, basically they use their fame to make a difference. John and Kenny do numerous things that help many causes...here's one.

I Love You my brothers!

We've ALL had one of those moments when we just wanted to punch our computer for running slow or crashing ... but eventually it all starts working again, feeds us some porn, and we reconcile. Not this guy.

38-year-old Lucas Hinch of Colorado Springs, Colorado says he and his Dell computer have been, quote, "fighting ... for the last several months."

Their war finally ended on Monday night when Lucas took it out to a back alley, and unloaded his GUN on it. He wound up putting eight bullets into the computer, which killed it.

Unfortunately for him, other people heard the gunshots and called the cops. Lucas was arrested for discharging a firearm within city limits.

No matter how stressful your job is, it's not as hard as getting your kid to put on pants, eat a waffle and make it to school on time.

A new study of 2.3 million parents found that the most stressful moment of their day is ... 7:35 A.M..

And obviously that doesn't have anything to do with what's happening at work. It has everything to do with trying to get your kids dressed, fed and out of the house on time.

Parents also spend an average or 23 minutes a day making breakfast ... which comes out to 140 hours per year.

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY is pretty dedicated to staying fit ... and when he's not making himself emaciated to play AIDS patients, he always looks fantastic. But it might surprise you to learn that weight training has little to do with it.

He says, quote, "I go whatever the role I'm playing needs. So if I'm doing an action movie or a football player, I go to the gym and hit the weights. I haven't done anything like that in years, so I haven't really picked up a weight in four years."

Matt says he's doing a Civil War movie now, and he has to stay at 174 pounds, so he's just doing sit-ups and push-ups.

We know it's trendy for companies to ask weird job interview questions to see how you think on your feet. Like, "If a train leaves Boston at 3:00 and another one leaves San Diego at 6:00, what color is Mel Gibson's favorite fish?"

It's fine to get a little thrown off by a random question... as long as you make sure you're NOT thrown off by the standard ones. Here's a list of the 10 most common interview questions, based on a study by the job website Glassdoor....

1. What are your Strengths?

2. What are your weaknesses?

3. Why are you interested in working here?

4. Where do you see yourself in five years? What about in ten years?

5. Why do you want to leave your current company?

6. Why do you have gaps in your job history?

7. What can you offer us that someone else can't?

8. What are three things your former boss would want you to improve on?

9. Are you willing to relocate?

10. Are you willing to travel?

If digital photography didn't exist and we were all still using film, it would REALLY help us with our vanity.

A new survey asked people how many SELFIES they take before they finally have one they like enough to post online.

Women take an average of SIX before they have on that's good enough to post.

Men take an average of FOUR.

The survey found 41% of people don't like how they look in most pictures... and they even feel BAD about themselves when they see photos that other people took of them.

ESPN suspended reporter BRITT MCHENRY for one week, after video of her going of on a parking lot attendant hit the Web. And it's easy to see why they took her off the air. She goes full-on MEAN GIRL on her victim. And it's really kind of infuriating.

It all started because Britt's car got towed in Arlington, Virginia. In the video, she tells the woman, quote, "I'm in the news, sweetheart. I will [effing] sue this place." But then she gets SERIOUSLY personal.

She says, quote, "I wouldn't work in a scumbag place like this. Makes my skin crawl even being here ... Do you feel good about your job? So I could be a college dropout and do the same thing?"

"Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me, huh?"

This happened on April 6th, and the attendant, whose name is Gina Michelle, had been trying to get the media to see it ever since. After it went viral, Britt apologized .. but not to Gina.

She said, quote, in an interview, "In an intense and stressful moment, I allowed my emotions to get the best of me and said some insulting and regrettable things. As frustrated as I was, I should always choose to take the high road. I am so sorry for my actions and will learn from this mistake."

La-Sonya Mitchell-Clark of Youngstown, Ohio was adopted as a baby and never knew who her biological mother was. She's 38 now, and still had no idea ... until earlier this week.

The Ohio Department of Health just released its birth records for everyone born before 1996, and La-Sonya was curious, so she decided to request hers. She got them in the mail on Monday, and found out her mother's name was Francine Simmons.

And interestingly enough, she works at a nonprofit where one of her COWORKERS is named Francine Simmons. So La-Sonya called her extension ... and told her, quote, "I think I'm your daughter."

They've been working at the same place for four years without realizing their connection ... and they live only six minutes away from each other.

Francine says she gave birth when she was 15. Quote, "I was put in a home, a girl's home. Got to hold her. Didn't get to name her." She said she's always wanted to meet her daughter but didn't know how.

La-Sonya says her adoptive parents supported her decision to find her birth mother. Quote, "My mom and dad have always been supportive of me. They're going to be a part of this, too."

When you're scrolling through Facebook and it looks like EVERYONE does cooler stuff than you, that's not quite true. Only 80% of them actually do cooler stuff than you...

Here are the 10 things most people have lied about doing:

1. Going on a great weekend vacation

2. Being an extra in a TV show

3. Swimming with dolphins

4. Climbing a mountain

5. Hanging out with celebrities

6. Having a sexual conquest

7. Getting surprised with a romantic trip

8. Doing something to get a tan ... and putting on fake tanner in photos for "proof"

9. Hiking naked

10. Going to a nude beach

So why do people feel the need to make up adventures for social media? Here are the top 5 reasons:

1. Their weekends are lame compared to their friends

2. They don't want people to think they're boring

3. They don't want people to find out they don't have any friends

4. Their coworkers have great stories and they want to join in

5. They're desperate for SOMETHING to talk about at work on Monday
